file-jpeg on Mac at login

Since updating to Gimp 2.10.14
/Applications/GIMP-2.10.app/Contents/Resources/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/file-jpeg is running on startup. It's not clear why this would be running at startup. Does anyone know why this executable would run on startup?

On startup, Gimp checks all the executables in the plug-in directories, if they are more recent than the last time they were registered, they are run again to refresh the registration data.

Registration data is stored in the "pluginrc" file in your Gimp profile. So there are several possibilities:

* For whatever reason, the file-jpeg plugin doesn't register completely (corrupt?) so its registration isn't updated in pluginrc

* The file-jpeg plugin timestamp keeps changing

* The pluginrc file is not writable, and is not updated by the registration

Thanks for the very quick response! Reading back, I was pretty unclear in my original post. The file-jpeg plug in is running on Mac system startup/login, not on GIMP startup. I can't find traces as to where that's taking place (yet), but I'm wondering why it would run to begin with at that time.

Could it be that the plug-in was running when your system was shut down/went to sleep/..., and the system is trying to restore running applications on startup/login?
